Thank kcuf for monocle. BBC please take notes

Monocle should not be the best news outlet. But it is

Cwycu ,

Now more left than the BBC

Still subscribe to the magazine but now all the radio programs just follow the BBC. Moninfle on Saturday and Sunday, the briefing etc now just completely left and bland. It’s fine to be anti-brexit, pro-democrat, on the fence with the ME, (guess panders to sponsors)but it’s now a ‘news channel’ anymore, just always pro one side and its relative biases.

Can user ,

Informative, erudite, fun - all in less than an hour

A great range of guests, subjects covered and with different presenters. Very enjoyable and well worth investing your time here
